  • Access to the co-located POWDERMET2018 conference and digital post-conference proceedings
  • Extended exhibit hall hours
  • Student poster sessions that allow students to present their work
  • A PM Evening Alehouse in the open exhibit hall for extended exhibitor networking
  • Full conference registration now includes the Closing Event - Boots and Blue Jeans: A Texas BBQ

Continuing features from last year’s conference include the return of the AM/PM Café and the Exhibitor Game Card program, which gives attendees a chance to win up to $500.

“Metal additive manufacturing is the latest cutting-edge technology to impact the PM industry,” stated James P. Adams, executive director/CEO, Metal Powder Industries Federation. “Metal AM is a natural fit for MPIF as we have supported the PM industry for nearly 75 years. We’re excited to offer an expanded AMPM conference that allows for more time for the transfer of technology, and to expose the metal AM sector to the greater PM industry through access to both AMPM and POWDERMET conferences.”
